I have just ordered this. What you get for the money is excelent!

Very good deal - but as in the CPU thread it should be pointed out that if you are planning to run Win 7 on this then you won't get the virtual XP mode - this chip will not support it. Great spec for the price though.

I'm sure there are some idiots on here who just vote everything cold as soon as they can.

Yeah, good deal this, its quite a bit more expensive on Amazon. Voted hot

Recently ordered a similar one off Ebuyer for £428

I saw a very similar one on DABS for the same price but about half the spec.

smashing,hot from me!

sorry if this is intruding on your deal but does anyone know if the Q6600 will be able to run virtual xp on windows 7?

Yes it can.

Good price but why not put 1Ghz ram in it, I know its not that big a deal but with such a great processor I would want 1Ghz ram. I bet the motherboard supports it too probably just scrimping a few £s on the memory.

according to
ark.intel.com/Pro…398

yes it does support VT technology :-D

only Q8200/8200S in the Q series do not support VT, and Q8300 depends on SPEC details, rest are fine.

no HDMI port? cold ! joking

no HDMI port? cold ! joking



even tho your joking for those who do need hdmi, get a cheap hdmi graphics i think £30.

Hot imo, nice deal

thats so hot.. i have a semi

just for your info i have one of these, it comes with a foxconn G31mx motherboard, a 300watt power supply and a hitatchi 500GB HDD, i have bought a geforce 9600 from XFX shop and 750watt power supply. this is very good for the money

CPU = Good (Aria £97.69)
CPU Fan = Loud as per review.
Case/PSU = Chinese Crap 300W (£18)
Board = Budget (£33) Only 2 Dimm slots (max 4gb)
4GB ddr2 = (£36)
DVDRW= (£16)
500GB sata 2 = (£34)
Vista = Oops = Install Windows 7 free till next June
Case = Chinese metal that bends and cuts you.
Graphics Card = Don't be silly its onboard crap.
Reliability = 1/6 faulty as per review.
Warranty = Lets hope so.

Please tell me why this is a good deal. I'm all ears.

i wish the site would post more detailed specs. if the power supply for example were any good, it wouldnt be too hard to drop a discrete graphics card in there and have yourself a gaming machine for little over 400 pounds....either way still hot!

I've been contemplating getting ]this base unit from Ebuyer - does the computer in the OP represent better value for money? I'm not sure whether it's worth the extra £130 to me, considering I'm not going to be doing anything intensive to warrant a quad core, and I've got a copy - two actually - of Windows 7 on pre-order?

so how many PCI slots does this computer have? Also, how many HD bays are there?

Because that would not give any performance increase unless the CPU's FSB was overclocked.

The FSB is a clock that keeps everything in sync, you can run the memory at a faster clock rate but that data aint going anywhere 'til the FSB ticks, therefore running the memory any faster is pointless because it's just waiting around. The memory supplied is already rated higher than necessary therefore you have a little headroom to overclock the FSB if you feel the need.

Superb deal & a V nice looking machine!

Yes thanks you I am quite familiar with what FSB is.

The Q8200 has a 1333Mhz FSB,

Yes but as the mobo has no bios support for increasing the voltage and so only supports 1.8v dimms. PC2-6400 (800Mhz) is the maximum the mobo supports.:thumbsup:

Hi sorry for late reply. Tis a really nice machine. Its bigger than i was expectin but thats not the end of the world. Its runs really fast and although it could do with a better graphics card perhaps im currently running it through a 32" lcd and it looks pretty darn good through that! Not had a single problem with it yet! Touch wood!

they are not doing this anymore, but i did convince my friend to get 1 before they stopped
